Return to Play update

A Note to Members of the Cornwall Curling Club

Jan. 4, 2022

Fellow Members:

The Chief Public Health Office (CPHO) has instituted restrictions that continue to have a major impact on Cornwall Curling Club operations.

These restrictions came into effect on Friday 17 December 2021 and today have been extended to 17 January 2022.

In short, CPHO has advised that:

“Indoor sport and recreational activities continue to be paused for Island children under the age of 12 years, including organized sports, tournaments, competitions, games, team training and practices; League play and practices for individuals over the age of 12 are paused. No teams can play games or get together for competitions.”

What does this mean for you the members at this time?

“The Club will continue to offer the “Members’ Ice Time” program, in accordance with CPHO guidance, until Friday, January 14th utilizing the same schedule that was in place prior to the Christmas/ New Year break.

While we are unable to offer any “team” ice sharing, we can offer at least some ice time for members to throw some stones and get some exercise.

Please call the club to book your ice times at 902-566-4427 or email cornwallcurling@eastlink.ca

We are hopeful that we can return to regular League play, with CPHO approval,  on Monday 17 January but we are also looking at what the long-term impacts of these restrictions will have on Club operations if they extend past 17 January.

Our overriding focus continues to be the health and safety of all that enter the Club.

When the CPHO revises their guidelines, the Cornwall Curling Club will also revise our guidelines and Operational Plans.
